Posted Feb 23, 2024 7:00:38 AM

ST. CLOUD, MINN., FEBRUARY 23, 2024 Marco, a leading technology services company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Marco to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2024. This is the sixth year in a row that Marco has received this rare distinction.

CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the industry-leading service providers in North America who are driving a new wave of growth and innovation for the channel through forward-thinking approaches to managed services, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

The Elite 150

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 

  • the MSP Pioneer 250 recognizes companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market
  • the MSP Elite 150 recognizes large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services
  • the Managed Security 100 recognizes MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services

How Marco Maintains its Status as the Industry Closes Ranks

Appearing among the Elite 150 in any given year is a notable achievement. But maintaining Elite 150 status over six years is remarkable, especially as the industry continues to face widespread consolidation, persistent labor shortages, and increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity attacks. 

Trevor Akervik, Marco’s Chief Operating Officer, believes that the company’s enduring success is due, in no small part, to its focus on relationships: 

“We’ve found that the best way to anticipate significant market shifts has been to listen to our clients’ pain points and constantly adapt our offerings accordingly. We were well-positioned to provide world-class security, networking, and collaboration solutions for remote workplaces well before the pandemic. And we’ve maintained close relationships with top manufacturers around the world to minimize supply chain challenges. So, while we’re not entirely immune to the economic and cybersecurity challenges caused by ongoing conflicts around the globe, we’re better able to withstand them.”
